My wife has suffered 2nd degree burns using a Fagor pressure cooker. She was using the pressure cooker to cook lentils. The pressure cooker was on the stove building pressure for 7 minutes and it flew off the stove and emptied its contents via the vent valve. The pressure cooker was half full when see started the cooking process and when I opened it, the cooker was empty.
